----------

Ra nulf II de Gernons, 4th Earl of Chester, VICOMTE (Viscount) DE BAYEUX, VICOMTE D'AVRANCHES, Ranulf also spelled RANDULF, or RALPH (b. c. 1100--d. Dec. 16, 115 3), a key participant in the English civil war (from 1139) between King Stephen and the Holy Roman empress Matilda (also a claimant to the throne of England). Ranulf, nicknamed 'aux Gernons' (i.e. moustaches), played a prominent and vaci llating part in the civil war of Stephen's reign, his actions, in common with m ost of his peers, springing from personal grievances rather than dynastic loyal ty or principle. Ranulf's father, Ranulf I, had been granted the earldom of Che ster in 1121 after his maternal uncle had drowned in the White Ship disaster (1 120) but, in return, had been compelled to surrender Cumberland and his patrimo ny of Carlisle. The restoration of these lost estates was the mainspring of muc h of Ranulf II's political life. Inheriting the Chester earldom in 1129, he ini tially supported Stephen as king after 1135. However, successive treaties betwe en Stephen and King David of Scotland in 1136 and 1139 gave the Scots large tra cts of land in Cumberland coveted by Ranulf who reacted by seizing the town and besieging the castle. Ranulf now allied with the Empress Matilda in defeating the king at Lincoln in February 1141, capturing and briefly imprisoning Stephen . Ranulf's association with the Angevin party was cemented by his marriage in 1 141 to the daughter of Robert of Gloucester. Later (1149) he transferred his al legiance to the king in return for a grant of the city and castle of Lincoln. C oventry received its original charter from him. However, his territorial ambiti ons were no closer realisation as the king of Scots was also a close ally of Ma tilda. In 1145, Ranulf was reconciled to Stephen. However, there was no love lo st between Ranulf and the king's entourage, many of whom had suffered at his ha nds. In August, 1146, at Northampton, Ranulf was suddenly arrested and put in c hains when he refused the king's demand to restore all lands he had taken. He w as only released when he surrendered all former royal property, including Linco ln. Stephen's arrest of Ranulf was a public relations disaster. He had broken h is oath of reconciliation of 1145 and his own promise of protection, thus deter ring any more defections from the Angevin faction. Stephen had breached a centr al tenet of effective medieval rule, that of being a good -- i.e. fair -- lord. Ranulf joined Henry FitzEmpress and was reconciled with David of Scotland who, in return for the lavish grant to Ranulf of most of Lancashire, retained Carli sle. But Ranulf was never a party man. His priorities remained centred on his o wn territorial and dynastic advantage, as shown by his 'conventio' with a leadi ng royalist baron Robert of Leicester (1149/53). Parents: Earl Of Chester Ranulph III DE MESCHINES Meschines and Lucia Of MERCIA.

Justiciar Of England Richard DE Lucy7,115,122 was born about 1098 in Diss, Norfolk, England. He died on 14 Jul 1179 in Chipping Ongar, Essex, England.115 He was buried in Lieutenant Of England - Ruled In Henry Ii's Absence. The first mention of this family is in a render made by King Henry I of the lor dship of Dice, in Norfolk (whether in requital of services, or as an inheritanc e, the record saith not) to Richard de Lucie, who was governor of Falais, in No rmandy, temp. King Stephen, and defended that place with great valour when besi eged by Geoffrey, Earl of Anjou, for which heroic conduct he had a grant of lan ds in the county of Essex with the services of divers persons, to hold by ten k nights' fees. In the subsequent contest between Stephen and the Empress Maud, h e remained steady in his allegiance to the former and obtained a victory of som e importance near Wallingford Castle. Upon the adjustment of the dispute, the T ower of London and the castle of Winchester were, by the advice of the whole cl ergy, placed in the hands of this feudal lord, he binding himself by solemn oat h and the hostage of his son to deliver them up on the death of King Stephen to King Henry, which, being eventually fulfilled, Richard de Lucy was constituted sheriff of Essex and Hertfordshire in the 2nd of Henry II, A.D. 1156, and in t hree years afterwards, being with the king in Normandy, he was despatched to En gland to procure the election of Thomas à Becket, then lord chancellor, to the archiepiscopal see of Canterbury, vacant by the death of Theobald, Abbot of Bec co. Soon after that he was appointed to the high office of Justice of England. In the 12th of this reign [1166], upon the aid then assessed for marrying the k ing's dau., he certified his knights' fees (lying in the cos. of Kent, Suffolk, and Norfolk) de veteri feoffamento, to be in number seven, and that his ancest ors performed the service of Castle Guard at Dover, for the same, as also that he held on knight's fee more, de nova feoffamento, in the co. Devon.

About t his time Becket, having fled into Normandy from the power of King Henry, came t o Wiceliac to celebrate the feast of the ascension, and observing several perso ns of distinction present, amongst whom was this Richard de Lucie, he ascended the pulpit and there, with lighted candles, pronounced the sentence of excommun ication against them all as public incendiaries betwixt the king and himself, b ut being neither convicted nor called to answer, they appealed and entered the church. Soon after this (13th Henry II) during a temporary absence of the king beyond sea, de Lucie was constituted Lieutenant of England, and again in 1173, when the Earl of Leicester and others having reared the standard of rebellion i n behalf of Prince Henry, he besieged, in conjunction with Reginald, Earl of Co rnwall, the town of Leicester and, having reduced it, demolished its walls and laid it in ashes.
In 1178, he founded the priory of Westwode in the diocese of Rochester in honour of St. Thomas, of Canterbury, the martyr, and began, about the same time, the foundation of the priory of Lesnes, in Kent, which he munif icently endowed. In this priory he subsequently assumed the habit of a canon re gular and departing this life soon after (about 22nd Henry II) [1176], and was buried in the chapter-house there.

He m. Rohais ---, and had issue, Geffrey, who d. in his father's lifetime, leaving Richard, his son and heir, who depart ing this life, s. p., before 1196, the inheritance devolved upon his aunt, Roha is; Hubert, who had the lordship of Stanford, in Essex, and hundred of Angre, f or his livelihood, but d. s. p.; Maude, m. 1st to Walter Fitz-Robert, to whom s he brought the lordship or Dice, and 2ndly, to Richard de Ripariis, and d. 27th Henry III, 1243, leaving issue; Rohais, m. 1st, to Fulbert de Dover, Lord of C hilham, in Kent, and 2ndly, Richard de Chilham. This Rohais, upon the decease o f her nephew, succeeded to the estates of her elder brother and, upon the death of her younger brother, Hubert, she had livery of the whole barony on paying a fine to the crown in the 9th King John [1208].

Governor Of Stafford Robert DE Lord Of Belvoir Toeni7,104,105,122,378 was born in 1031 in Tosni, Louviers, Eure, Normandy, France.

[Burke's Peerage]

--------------------- -----------------------------------------------------------------
The followin g two were written almost as if Robert de Stafford & Robert de Todeni, of Belvo ir are 2 different people. I actually had Robert as two different people until I found sources confirming that they are one and the same person.
----------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------- --

The first that assumed the surname of Stafford was Robert de Stafford, who pos sessed, at the time of the General Survey, lordships in Suffolk, Gloucestershir e, Lincolnshire, Warwickshire, and Staffordshire, in all 131, and Dugdale surmi ses that the assumption of the surname of Stafford arose from his being governo r of Stafford Castle, which had been erected by the Conqueror; for his name ori ginally was de Toenei, and he is said to have been a younger son of Roger de To enei, standard bearer of Normandy. of this Robert de Stafford, who lived till H enry I's time, nothing further is known than his founding an Augustine priory a t Stone, in Staffordshire, upon the spot where Enysan de Waltone, one of the co mpanions of the Conqueror, had killed two nuns and a priest. He m. Avice de Cla re, and was s. by his son, Nicholas de Stafford. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, A beyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p . 498, Stafford, Barons Stafford, Earls of Stafford, &c.]

------------------ -------------------------

Amongst the most distinguished companion in arms o f the Conqueror was Robert de Todeni, a nobleman of Normandy, upon whom the vic torious monarch conferred, with numerous other grants, an estate in the county of Lincoln upon the borders of Leicestershire. Here de Todeni erected a stately castle and, from the fair view it commanded, gave it the designation of Belvoi r Castle, and here he established his chief abode. At the time of the General S urvey, this powerful personage possessed no less than eighty extensive lordship s, viz., two in Yorkshire, one in Essex, four in Suffolk, one in Cambridge, two in Hertfordshire, three in Bucks, four in Gloucestershire, three in Bedfordshi re, nine in Northamptonshire, two in Rutland, thirty-two in Lincolnshire, and s eventeen in Leicestershire. "of this Robert," saith Dugdale, "I have not seen a ny other memorial than that the Coucher-Book of Belvoir recordeth: which is, th at bearing a venerable esteem to our sometime much celebrated protomartyr, St. Alban, he founded near to his castle a priory for monks and annexed it as a cel l to that great abbey in Hertfordshire, formerly erected by the devout King Off a in honour of that most holy man." Robert de Todeni, Lord of Belvoir, d. in 10 88, leaving issue by his wife Adela, William, who assumed the surname of Albini ; Berenger; Geoffrey; Robert; and Agnes. He was s. by his eldest son, William d e Albini, Brito, Lord of Belvoir.

on the history of the Earldom of Hu ntingdon:

His [Waltheof's] son-in-law Simon de St Liz was the next holder of the Earldom [of Huntingdon], the family connections of Simon's wife Maud makin g the transition a natural one under the terms prevailing then. Indeed the his tory of the Earldom over the next few decades amply illustrates the almost chat tel-like nature of such a title at this time, a quasi-hereditary post which was nevertheless as often as not held from the king at pleasure and which could be transferred between members of the same family like a parcel of land.

After Earl Simon's [Matilda's 1st husband] death, his Widow marrie d David I of Scotland, who consequently became Earl of Huntingdon too, keeping the Earldom even after he succeeded his brother as King of Scots. He sided wit h the Empress Maud against Stephen I but came to terms with the latter and made the Earldom over to his son Henry. Henry swore fealty to Stephen but subseque ntly fought against him under the Scottish banner, which may account for Simon de St Liz's son, another Simon, being recognized as Earl of Huntingdon before H enry's death in 1152.

Lord Of Sibton Walter DE Caen7,262,516,2328,2329 was born about 1050 in Caen, Calvados, Normandy, France. He died after 1086 in Domesday Lord Of Sibton, Yorkshire, England.2328 Notes under Reginald de Peyton son of Walter:

The first of the family on rec ord by the name of Peyton was Reginald de Peyton, second son of Walter, Lord of Sibton, younger brother of Mallet, sheriff of Yorkshire. This Reginald held th e lordships of Peyton Hall, in Ramshold, and Boxford, in Suffolk, of Hugh de Bi god; he was stewerd to Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, and gave lands to the monk s of Thetford, to pray for the soul of Hugh Bigod. He had two sons, William, wh o held certain lands in Boxford, of the fee of the abbey of St. Edmundsbury, as appears by charter of his nephew John, and John de Peyton. [John Burke & John Bernard Burke, Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies of England, Ireland, and Scotlan d, Second Edition, Scott, Webster, & Geary, London, 1841, p. 408, Peyton, of Is leham]

The Domesday book states that Walter de Caen was Lord of Sibton, give n to him by Robert Malet's mother (William Malet's widow).

The giving of Sib ton to Walter de Caen by WIlliam Malet's widow implies some relationship. See Domesday Book for history of Sibton.

--------------------------------------- ---------------------

The following quotation from the "Butler Family Histor y" indicates that Walter is son of William Malet, which would explain the age d ifference between Walter & William (ie. they weren't brothers as indicated abov e.}:

Theobald Blake Butler, a leading authority on the history of the family , who died only this year [1965] and whose works are now available to scholars in the National Library, Dublin, the British Museum and the Irish Genealogical Research Society, laboriously traced back to Domesday the lands which this fami ly subsequently held in East Anglia and Lancashire and discovered that at least nine of the sixteen or more holdings which our Hervey was believed to have own ed in Norfolk and Suffolk were entered in Domesday Book under the ownership of Walter de Caen. The discovery led him to surmise that the paternal ancestor of the Butlers was Walter de Caen (son of William Malet who accompanied the Conqu eror and, being half Saxon, was entrusted with the burial of King Harold after the Battle of Hastings).

--------------------------------------------------- -------

Based on the "Butler Family History" and the approximate birth dates , I am making Walter de Caen son of William Malet. I think, however, that the name implies an illegitmate birth, so he may not be the son of Walter's wife, e ven though her giving him Sibton would imply blood relationship. Perhap he was son of her, but not William Malet? Parents: WILLIAM Malet and Hesilia CRISPIN.

Children were: Sheriff Of Norfolk Robert FITZ WALTER, Reginald De PEYTON.

William de Mandeville, Earl of Essex, like his deceased kinsman, espoused the c ause of the barons and stoutly maintained it, even after the decease of King Jo hn, being one of those who then assisted Lewis of France in the siege of Berkha mstead Castle, occupied by the king's forced. A sally having been made, however , from the garrison, much of the baggage of the besiegers was captured and, amo ngst other things, the banner of the Earl William. His lordship seems to have m ade his peace soon after, for we find him engaged in the Welsh wars. He d. in t he flower of his age, 25 December, 1227, and, as he left no issue, the Earldom of Essex devolved upon his sister, Mary, Countess of Hereford, while the lands which he inherited passed to his half-brother, John FitzPiers.
